The body is a fully-interconnected organism, and your muscles do a lot of work to support your spine. Sprains, strains, tight knots, and other painful muscle problems respond well to muscle adjustment techniques.

FAQs

A chiropractor is a Doctor who specializes in neurologic and musculoskeletal conditions of the spine.
A chiropractor’s main focus is on removing subluxations. A subluxation, quite simply, is a bone out of place, putting pressure on a nerve, causing a bad communication down the line.
The most important thing for any physician to realize is that an examination has to occur before treatment is rendered. In our office we always examine prior to moving any bones and or joints in the body. In addition to that, we may consider doing radiographic or x-ray examination to make sure that treatment not only is going to be effective but safe as well.
From what I can recall from school, there are over 800 different chiropractic techniques in existence. From the most common bone and joint moving Diversified. Or, more soft tissue-based techniques. Our job is to eliminate subluxations by putting bones back into place, to take pressure off the nerve, and allow for proper information to travel.

Chiropractors aren’t medical doctors because they don’t have an M.D., but they do have a doctor of chiropractic degree. They have considerable chiropractic training and are licensed chiropractors.

Chiropractors begin their education by earning a bachelor’s degree with a science focus. Following graduation, individuals enroll in a four-year chiropractic curriculum that includes both classroom and hands-on training.

All states in the United States require chiropractors to hold a doctor of chiropractic degree from a college authorized by the Council on Chiropractic Education (CCE).

Some chiropractors opt to focus on a certain area of practice. They complete a second residency that lasts between two and three years. There are over a hundred distinct chiropractic techniques to choose from. There is no guarantee that one strategy is superior to another.

Some chiropractors prefer to specialize in a number of different areas, describing their approach as “diversified” or “integrated.”

Regardless of expertise, all chiropractors must pass an exam to acquire a license to practice. They must also attend frequent continuing education classes to stay current in the area.

The most common condition that we treat in our office is pain. Pain can manifest in a multitude of different ways. However it’s more about function that is concerning. Lack of function can mean numbness and tingling down into your legs, weakness in your arms, or fatigue. If you are suffering with any of these you may be a candidate for chiropractic care.
We never plan for treatment to be painful. However, because we are often moving joints that haven’t been moved in many years, patients have had some soreness after treatment for a short time. Our best recommendation is to use ice to slow down the inflammation. Most of our patients feel immediate relief after treatment.
This is a large crystal ball question. How long, and or how much treatment is needed are completely custom to every patient in our office. That’s why we do an extensive examination to determine your best course of treatment.
There are a ton of conditions from chiropractic care; headaches, neck pain, migraines, TMJD, jaw pain, car accident trauma, slips and falls, shoulder pain, elbow pain, wrist pain, carpal tunnel, hip pain, low back pain, upper back pain, knee pain, ankle pain, fibromyalgia.
Some insurance does cover care within our office. We always do a courtesy benefits check prior to initiating care. So, when you come in you will always have a clear picture of what’s covered and what’s not covered. Transparency is the name of the game.
